Heat Pump

...2004. This summary page includes recent updates to the topic since publication. SUMMARY OF actIONS tOwarDS SuStaINable OutcOMeS Introduction Alternative low energy air conditioning solutions are now commonly sought in preference to typical air conditioning systems for both residential and commercial applications. The industry has seen a growing emergence of ground source heat pump (GSHP) installations throughout Australia over the last five years. A broad spectrum of facilities ranging from domestic housing, hospitals, education facilities, commercial offices and civic buildings to name a few, are now realising the environmental benefits offered by GSHP systems over more commonly used air conditioning systems. This summary note provides a brief overview of the previous note and provides an update on changes that have occurred since. basic Strategies Heat rejection is fundamental to all air conditioning systems. Typically, unsightly roof mounted air cooled condensers and cooling towers are by far the most commonly used method for rejecting heat from a building. Ground source heat pumps are somewhat different to the norm. Basically GSHP are refrigeration machines that provide heating and cooling by using ground water and the earth as a medium to reject and/or absorb heat and as such do not require air cooled condensers or cooling towers. This is made possible because ground temperatures are stable, remaining relatively constant throughout the year. During summer......

Pumps

...Mechanical pumps may be submerged in the fluid they are pumping or external to the fluid. Pumps can be classified by their method of displacement into positive displacement pumps, impulse pumps, velocity pumps, gravity pumps, steam pumps and valveless pumps. Positive displacement pump A lobe pump lobe pump internals Mechanism of a scroll pump A positive displacement pump makes a fluid move by trapping a fixed amount and forcing (displacing) that trapped volume into the discharge pipe. Some positive displacement pumps use an expanding cavity on the suction side and a decreasing cavity on the discharge side. Liquid flows into the pump as the cavity on the suction side expands and the liquid flows out of the discharge as the cavity collapses. The volume is constant through each cycle of operation. Positive displacement pump behavior and safety Positive displacement pumps, unlike centrifugal or roto-dynamic pumps, theoretically can produce the same flow at a given speed (RPM) no matter what the discharge pressure. Thus, positive displacement pumps are constant flow machines. However, a slight increase in internal leakage as the pressure increases prevents a truly constant flow rate. A positive displacement pump must not operate against a closed valve on the discharge side of the pump, because it has no shutoff head like centrifugal pumps. A positive displacement pump operating against a closed discharge valve continues to produce flow and the pressure in the......

Don't Underestimate the Power of the Pump

...Don’t Underestimate the Power of the Pump In April 2013, The Joint Commission published a Sentinel Event Alert describing a patient death that occurred secondary to a delayed response to a device alarm. This same article describes two of the most common contributing factors reported are alarm fatigue and alarm settings that are not customized to the individual patient or patient population. Recommendations made by both the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) and ECRI Institute included the need to “establish guidelines for tailoring alarm settings and limits for individual patients. The guidelines should address situations when limits can be modified to minimize alarm signals and the extent to which alarms can be modified to minimize alarm signals.” Additional recommendations included to define a process for continual improvement and constant optimizing of alarm systems policies and configurations. Intermountain Healthcare is a nonprofit healthcare system of 22 hospitals with a Medical Group of more than 185 physician clinics covering patients in Utah and southeastern Idaho. In July 2013, the quality and safety teams of Intermountain Healthcare followed the recommendations from the AAMI and ECRI organizations and convened a task force to evaluate the many devices in use within our facilities and analyze the alerts and alarms that correspond to those devices. One of these devices, the infusion pump, has allowed for a very accurate analysis of......

Iron Pump a/S Into China

...1. Introduction In 1906, Mr. C.G. Arnesen established Iron Pump A/S. Six years later in 1912, Iron Pump presented their first pump, which was installed in the world’s first ocean going diesel motor vessel, M/S Selandia (Iron Pump, Company). With more than 100 years of experience, Iron Pump is today a leading manufacturer of pumps in the marine and offshore industry. Today, the pumps are supplied worldwide where almost 90 percent of the output is through Iron Pumps network of agents in more than 70 countries (Iron Pump, Company). Iron Pump’s core competence is its main focus on production and R&D in the value creation activities (Hill, 2012, p. 425). This knowledge of applications has founded the corner stone of the company. Iron Pump is situated in Herlev, near Copenhagen and has around 100 employees. Iron Pump has an annual revenue exceeding EUR 18 million (Iron Pump, Company).

Based on this study, we are making a report which will be benefited to students who will study the subject INDUSTRIAL FLUID POWER. Working model is useful in our laboratory & useful for better understanding the working of gear pump to the student in future. Chapter 1 BASICS OF PUMPS 1. INTRODUCTION 1.1 What are pumps and pumping systems? Pump is a device which is used to pumping the fluid at various heights. It is similar to the heart in the human body. A hydraulic pump is a mechanical device which converts mechanical energy into hydraulic energy. It provides the force necessary to move a liquid, thus transmitting power. Pumping systems account for nearly 20% of the world’s electrical energy demand and range from 25-50% of the energy usage in certain industrial plant operations. Pumps have two main purposes:  Transfer of liquid from one place to another place (e.g. water from an underground aquifer into a water storage tank)  Circulate liquid around a system (e.g. cooling water or lubricants through machines and equipment) The main components of a pumping system are:  Pumps (different types of pumps are explained in......

...When consumers decide to buy a product based on the interest and importance of the product to them, this is defined as involvement level. Read more: http://www.brighthub.com/money/personal-finance/articles/71493.aspx#ixzz1WcglStX2 According to former research Huurne, ter & Gutteling involvement does increase the need for additional information as well as affective responses, and therefore indirectly motivates people to seek or avoid additional information. Buyers become psychologically involved when making the decision to buy a product. However, there are levels that determine the involvement. For example, if I'm out running errands and I'm thirsty, I will run into a convenience store and grab a bottle of water. Usually, I will grab any cold bottle of water and purchase it. It is a quick purchase that will probably last under a minute. Thus, my involvement level is low when buying my bottle of water. We can see, elements determine level of involvement of this bottle of water is basically cost and safety. However, my involvement level raises when I start to notice that I like one particular brand of water. So every time I run errands, I stop in the convenience store and search for that particular brand and purchase it. This is limited decision making involvement. And there are reasons for this increase of level of involvement and make a girl like me to seaching for this particular brand. Or we could say, this is how this brand react for the targeting on me.

The major players in the industry include Procter & Gamble, Kimberly-Clark etc. Personal care products are available throughout the US via five main categories of retailers including mass merchants, club stores, supermarkets, drug stores and dollar stores. It is worth mentioning here that retailers exhibit a lot of muscle when it comes to sales of the personal care products, thus manufacturers of personal care products depend heavily on the retailers. A unique attribute of the personal care industry is the substantial presence of private labels. These private labels have been introduced by these very retailers, who control the production, packaging and promotion of the products. Some retailers have vertically integrated and own the manufacturing of the products, while some retailers purchase their goods from third-party manufacturers (e.g T Corp) and re-sell under their own brand names. The primary reason why private labels operate in the presence of heavyweight branded labels is to offer consumers with lower-priced alternatives to the more expensive branded goods. Acceptance levels of the private labels has been on the rise due to good quality of products, and in 2007 private label product categories had total sales exceeding US$70bn. Retailers have the unique advantage of having a lower cost of goods sold, in case they purchase the goods from a third party manufacturer.......

Optical Pump

...circular polarized. If such a light been absorbed by a 87Rb atom, the only possible excitation that can happen will be the one between two levels whose mF are different by either +1 or -1, the sign is determined by the polarization of the light. However, the atom will not stay at the exited level forever. Due to varies of mechanism, the atom will relax and de-excite back to 5S level. But this time there is no previous strong restriction on ΔmF but a weaker one which isΔmF=0, ±1. Therefore, if the absorption and relaxation happen continuously for several times, the atom (87Rb in this example)will end up been trapped in mF=2 (or -2 for opposite polarization)sublevel of 5S. And this process is the so called optical pumping. After we pump the atom in Rb vapor into its final status, it will not be able to absorb any light from the lamp. Now we can apply another RF magnetic field to the vapor. If the frequency of the signal is resonant with the energy gap between two adjacent sublevels, mF=2 and mF=1 for example, the simulated absorption can happen. Then the vapor will be de-pumped and it can again absorb some light from the lamp. By measuring the absorption curve versus the frequency of RF signal, we can get plenty of information of the atom. [Experiment Results] I. Diagram of Apparatus The diagram of apparatus is shown in Figure 1. Fig.1 The rubidium lamp generates the light which is going to be used as the pumping light in this experiment. The light goes......
